An aerial photo of Rehoboth Beach, Delaware lets you see that there is more than just beach. The town goes back to the shopping corridor along Route 1 – home of the famous Rehoboth “Outlets.”

Rehoboth isn’t only about shopping. Save some time for sunning and swimming on the clean, sandy beach, or take a trip to the Delaware Seashore State Park. The park is bordered on the east by the Atlantic Ocean and on the west by Rehoboth Bay and the Indian River Inlet. The park has two ocean swimming areas, bathhouses with showers and changing rooms, surf fishing, a surfing beach, sailing and windsurfing.

If biking or walking is on the top of your list for vacation activities, be sure to spend some time on the Junction & Breakwater Rail Trail. The 6 mile long trail connects Rehoboth Beach and Lewes, taking you through forests, coastal wetlands and farmland.

Kids will love Jungle Jim’s water park. It’s the largest water park in Delaware with plenty of slides, bumper boats, go-karts, mini-golf and batting cages.

Steamed crabs are a tradition at the shore and what goes best with crabs? Beer, of course! Take a free tour of The Dogfish Head Brewery in nearby Milton, or enjoy one of their many tasty brews at the Dogfish Brew Pub in downtown Rehoboth.

After a day in the sun, you can dine in one of Rehoboth’s many fine restaurants, dance the night away to live entertainment, take a stroll on the beach or boardwalk, enjoy free concerts at The Rehoboth Beach Bandstand or watch the kids get their thrills on the rides at Funland.

The fun doesn’t stop at the end of summer. If you prefer the quieter off-season, Rehoboth has activities and events year-round.
